ACRYSOL™ DR-73 Thickener

An APEO-free*, solvent-free*, hydrophobically-modified alkali-soluble (HASE) rheology modifier for waterborne architectural coatings. This product builds efficient mid-shear (KU) and ICI (high shear) viscosity, which offers application and feel properties similar to medium grades of HEC and HMHEC cellulosic thickeners, as well as increased high shear viscosity for higher film build, brush drag and hiding. It is supplied as a low viscosity liquid that is easy to handle and incorporate during the manufacturing process.

Uses:

  • Interior and exterior paints
  • Wide range of sheen through high gloss paints, including low-VOC formulations
  • Water-based architectural and industrial coatings
  • Utility with all binder types
  • Additive applications
  • Exterior Insulation Finish Systems (EIFS)
  • Paint/coatings
  • Paper
  • Textiles
  • Paper processing and finishing
  • Building and construction
  • Nonwoven binders
  • General industrial finishes
  • Art conservation applications
  • Water-based industrial baking enamels

Benefits:

  • Broad formulation latitude
  • Ease of handling
  • Use over a wide pH range
  • Reduced levels required for comparable rheology
  • Improved gloss development versus HEC
  • Most offerings ideal for low VOC formulations
  • Product offerings across different sheer ranges
  • Excellent spatter resistance
  • Broad latex compatibility
  • APEO Free*

*made without APEO-containing surfactant
